A: I started as a child but took a long break between the 1980’s to early 2000’s time frame after serving almost 20 years combined between the military as a medic,a Police officer and later a private military contractor. I survived a lot and decided that was one of the things I did not complete to the fullest in my life. I ran off to Hollywood and just started doing it!

Q: What’s the craziest thing to happen on set?

Q: Who/what has been an inspiration for you for your craft?
A: I grew up with watching movies and TV and just want to do and give others the same thing that I got from it. It’s not saving the world but maybe, just maybe it might influence someone at the right time. I just hope those type of people don’t watch my more violent and darker projects and get influenced by that.
